Finland is poised to enact a new intelligence law containing provisions on online surveillance operations and the deployment of secret agents abroad. The issue is currently on the agenda of a task force assigned by the Ministry of Defence to consider intelligence acquisition activities. Initially, the task force set out to primarily mull over the surveillance of computer networks, but now its memorandum is also believed to include a formal proposal for a separate intelligence law.
